a bucket list of smart shopping techniques

Without much fanfare, we'll give you some tips on how you can shop wisely online. Your goal is to find the best deal without compromising on the quality of the stuff and on your buyer protection rights.

  1. Wait for clearance sales. During these times, merchandise you love will often cost only half of the regular price tag. Do not mistake clearance stocks for salvaged items, because the two are not one and the same.

  2. Choose trusted vendors. Sellers who have established their online presence are less likely to scam you and are more careful about protecting their reputation. Be sure to read whatever reviews you can find.

  3. Look beyond the price tag. A number of cunning merchants use all sorts of fees to balloon the final cost of your purchase. Avoid nasty surprises by prioritizing prices indicated as "nett," "all-in" or "clean." Ideally, the price should include free shipping. If not, then check if the shipping fee calculations are reasonable.

  4. Check the available payment options. PayPal is by far the one of the few payment processors that offer buyer protection. To avoid disappointment, steer clear of sellers who accept payments only via Western Union, G-Cash or other methods that will make tracking the merchant and asking for a refund difficult, if not impossible.
